Located in the heart of Oyster Bay Village this front porch Colonial melds modern amenities and space with all the charming detail of 1920. Pride and love is evident in this 3 bedroom, 2 full bath residence, that was the builder’s own. You’ll appreciate incredible features like glass pocket doors, thick original moldings, classic hardware and wood floors throughout. But you’ll really fall for the way the house lives. Truly ideal for entertaining, the home offers a surprisingly large formal dining room that flows easily into the extended kitchen, which opens to a fabulous family room addition! Plenty of room for family and friends in this home where every room reveals hints of the past, yet the renovations are complete.
Step in from the quaint covered front porch and into the atrium. Your hallway offers a coat closet and wood floors. To your right, the formal living room is made cozy by a wood burning fireplace. French doors open into a bright office/study, which is outfitted with heavy moldings and big windows. Work from home in style and comfort. Beyond the living room is a huge dining room you’ll treasure. Glass pocket doors separate it from the living room and a swing door on the opposite end leads to the eat in kitchen. The back of the home was extended to enlarge the kitchen, and incorporate a big, vaulted family room with a handsome stone fireplace and architectural windows. This is the heart of the house!
The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The bathroom on this floor is completely renovated with beautiful pedestal sink, white tile and chrome finishes. Sliders open from the dining area of the kitchen out onto a big patio that leads to a koi pond…
Climb the staircase to the second floor. Here you’ll find wood floors (even beneath carpet), two big hall closets, the family bath and three large bedrooms. As on the first level, these rooms all feature exposed wood moldings, heavy original doors and antique hardware. The bathroom offers a built-in vanity area and marble counters. Access to the walk-up attic is through one of the secondary bedrooms. The attic is huge and usable – it could even be finished as a bonus room, the perfect artist’s loft.
Storage is ample in this home. In addition to the attic, there is a full basement and outside, a 3 car garage offers a work studio above, perfect for crafting or building. The property is extremely deep and shaded by mature sycamore trees and evergreens. Nestled among other antique homes on a hilltop street in historic Oyster Bay, this house is within walking distance to village shopping and restaurants. With all the character, space and updates you crave, and a location that’s hard to beat, this house is a gem that won’t last.
